Also known as the Lingzhi or Hemlock Varnish Shelf, the Reishi genus is revered in ancient Chinese culture for its medicinal Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) properties, said to promote virility and a healthy immune system. While for a long time this was only folklore, science is now beginning to reveal the unique qualities of these polypore mushrooms. With a leathery fruiting body not unlike lacquer in appearance and a vaguely sour taste, they are far from a choice edible, but can be brewed into a medicinal tea, and further fermented into a probiotic mushroom kombucha to promote digestive health.
Regardless of how you use this mushroom, the growing experience is reward in itself. The glistening red antlers reach through open space with glacial slowness, creating an atmosphere of something beautifully alien. They can take some months to mature but are relatively undemanding, preferring a basic sawdust substrate (preferably hemlock but most hardwoods are fine) and being more forgiving than other varieties in terms of airflow and humidity.
